India will take on Australia in the second T20I at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on Friday, September 23. Both teams recently met in the opening T20I, where the tourists defeated India by four wickets.
It’s a do-or-die encounter for India as they need to win in order to keep the series alive. On the other hand, Australia will be looking to seal the series.
The track at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium is likely to offer assistance for the spinners. The humidity is expected to be around 78 per cent, which could bring in the dew factor.
